Rubio soft on illegal immigration, pro-Crist mailer claims



Here's the latest mailer from the 527 committee Sen. Mike Fasano created to back Charlie Crist. It's a tougher attack than the first one, and goes out to 300,000 Republicans* statewide today.

The mailer, which includes a gratuitous shot of Che Guevara, focuses on bills that would have allowed children of undocumented immigrants to get in-state tuition and another extending health insurance. The ideas died in the Senate, which the mailer does not say. Also missing is how Crist has moderated his views significantly as an independent candidate for U.S. Senate.

A third mailer, aimed at Democrats, is expected to drop later this week. * Fasano said the 300,000 figure is actual voters, not households, and there might be two Republicans in one home.
